Public education in American society has been established on the premise that all children and/or youth should be afforded an appropriate education at public expense. Only in recent history has the concept of "all" been extended to the handicapped and other minority groups in a comprehensive interpretation. This report contains summaries of adjudicated cases and other pertinent related materials drawn from professional texts, journals, and law reviews concerning the education of the handicapped. Separate chapters deal with the right to an education; testing labeling and placement; commitment and treatment; and administration. (Author/JF)
